ISSUE-253 (Incoming SMS): Binding to Incoming SMS from Script [Mobile Web Applications Best Practices]

http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/BPWG/Group/track/issues/

Raised by: Jo Rabin
On product: Mobile Web Applications Best Practices

My ACTION-690 has me raising this issue. The question arose as follows:

5.5.3 - Push

    BS: Push is widely deployed in networks. As a way to do event-based
    delivery instead of polling you could use it to minimise network
    traffic

    CMN: It's in WAP browsers

    BS: Almost every phone browser is a WAP browser, and they
    implemented push

    CMN: Push isn't in "Web" browsers - full internet as opposed to WAP
    browsers

    JR: There are two cases here... on the one hand WAP push and on the
    other hand application binding to incoming SMS to generate event
    based behavior

    BS: There is a problem of education. There is no generic way to bind
    SMS to an application, and that would be a proprietary
    implementation detail.

    JR: ..."if the device supports it".

    BS: The only standard method I know of is MIDP registry.

    JR: To my mind there is a distinction between WAP push and bindings
    on information pushed to an application. Maybe more information is
    needed...

    BS: We haven't said that MIDP-based browsers are not in scope...

    CMN: No. But I think it is clear that MIDP-based stuff is not
    readily within the scope of Web stuff - it is a particualr platform,
    in the same way that ActiveX relies ona aprticular platform, rather
    than being a general Web technology.

    JR: Think we need some more research to look at this... would
    someone like to take an Action?
